It’s a special year for Affies. They turn 100 years old. They have had a setback. The World Schools Festival (WSF) that was meant to take place at their school as part of the centenary celebrations has been cancelled. Organisers blamed the Coronavirus for their decision. However from despair comes hope. Affies have the opportunity to ask the nine other school 1st XVs frrom around SA that were also let down by the scrapping of the WSF, to attend an Affies 100th Rugby Festival starting on 25 March 2020.
Affies will take on all the powerhouses in their 100th year – 21 Feb 2020
Perhaps the blessing in disguise is that the 2020 Witbulle comes into the season flying under the radar, which takes off a little bit of pressure, if that is possible for a national powerhouse rugby school where expectations are always high.
The fixture list contains many interesting clashes and the meetings against fellow national powerhouses Grey College, Paarl Boys’ High and Paarl Gymnasium are bound to rate as the most anticipated clashes of the season.
